At a typical educational conference, there are adults filling the rooms, adults serving the food, adults handling the registration, adults ushering people to the correct rooms, etc. Well we thought, why not involved kids too?! This whole conference is to benefit students, so why not invite students to participate? With students being our most abundant resource in the district, it was an easy choice. Check out the Storify here !
The first several months of planning we were concerned that we wouldn't have enough student volunteers. Yet by the time we got through April, we had more that 50 student and 10 adult volunteers! They ranged from 3rd grade - 8th grade from all eight schools in the district. We couldn't believe it and got started right away on making some fun, productive jobs for them.— Mrs. Hauer (@hmshauer) May 9, 2015
As you can imagine, Saturday, was quite a bit more involved than just a walk through the halls! Students participated in a number of ways throughout the conference.
Some highlights included:

(students beat teachers)-all students participated!
At the end of the day on Saturday, the students had been so productive and were such a joy to have at the conference. It was a great success to have them there participating. We could not have done it without them. Till next year!
